Three Fun Ideas for Family Worship

If you’re running out of ideas for family worship night, you’ve come to the right place. Young children and teenagers can sometimes get restless during meetings and family evenings. That’s why it’s important to get creative with family worship and bring in ideas and topics that will keep the entire family engaged. Here at Ministry Ideaz, we’ve put together three creative ideas for family worship that are not only fun, but also great for learning the Bible together.

1. Bible Scrabble

The original scrabble requires you to use only words – and no names – from the dictionary. However, theme scrabble allows you to choose any book (ex. The Bible) and also allows the use of names. Whenever you play a word or name, the player must give scriptural information about the word/name they chose to play. This game is especially helpful because each player can choose a different book – preferably a book that they are familiar with and understand. You may not want to keep score so that you can create an encouraging environment free of any competition. Bible Scrabble will deepen your family’s spirituality and create a fun atmosphere.

2. Dramatize Bible Scenes

Not only does dramatizing allow your child to fully understand and know the lines of their favorite scripture, it’s also fun! With your help, let your children create a costume that matches the scripture they choose. Then, let your child study the scene inside and out until they are ready for performance. Once they fully understand it, get your video camera out and record each of their performances. This option creates a fantastic atmosphere for learning and also provides future laughs for the whole family.

3. Collages

For the brothers and sisters that lack artistic ability, collages are a perfect idea. Read the chapters ahead of time, and allow the children to pick some aspect of the chapters to focus on. Once they have chosen, they will dive deep into research and present their findings in collage form. They can gather pieces of magazines, fabric, pictures, and even write some of the phrases on their board. After they finish creating, let them talk about why they chose each piece of the collage and how it represents the part of the Bible that they chose. This option is perfect for families with preteens.

These ideas are great for both small families and large get-togethers. Invite a few other families over and host a giant family worship evening. Add music and food and soon you will have the perfect family worship night! For more Jehovah’s Witnesses supplies and products, check out Ministry Ideaz.
